Surveillance & Data

A core function of the Region II Infertility Prevention Project (IPP) was to collect and report prevalence monitoring data on Chlamydia and Gonorrhea testing and positivity conducted throughout four states/project areas: New Jersey, New York City, New York State, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands.

This information was collected by each project area according to national data standards, and collated by the Regional Infrastructure (CAI) for submission to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The data were included in CDC's Chlamydia Surveillance Supplement Annual Report, and shared within the Region and Project Areas on an ongoing basis in order to support program evaluation and monitoring efforts.
